Acupressure is a centuries old hands on therapy that can be used to not only relieve chronic muscular tension but also help clients connect their body and mind. The points used are the same as those used in acupuncture only, rather than needles, the pads of my fingers hold the points. This allows me to be very energetically in touch with changes happening in the musculature. As this is clothed work, it is perfect for those who believe they need to pay attention to their bodies call for help and yet are unsure about massage in general, either due to past experience or just a lack of experience with touch therapy. Please be sure to wear something light and comfortable such as sweats or yoga pants.
